Although the archives of the Twin Falls Times-News mention a Fox Theatre in Buhl, there is no evidence to connect it with the well-known William Fox Theatres. Their are stories of the Fox Theatre going back to at least 1918 when a Michael Neilson owned it. Around that same time there are stories of boxing matches being held there. A Film Daily Yearbook from 1928 lists the Fox Theatre in Buhl as having 400 seats.
A June 24, 1928 article in the Salt Lake Tribune noted that C.C. Voeller, now owned the Fox Theatre. He and his partner, I.H. Harris, were remodeling two stores next door to the Fox Theatre to turn it into a new showplace. When the new theatre was completed the Fox Theatre would be converted to a store. The newer theatre was finally completed and the old Fox Theatre presumably closed. The building can be seen today in downtown Buhl next door to the Moorish-styled Ramona Theatre.
